Porsche 993 Turbo S

Photoshoot in Sydney of a stunning midnight blue Porsche 993 Turbo S. Only 183 cars have been made and this is one of the few that made it to Sydney. The car has been heavily modified and made a lot lighter for perfect track performances.

This one is extra special for me as it was my first official photoshoot of a car. I really enjoyed it and it created a big thirst for more!

During the second to the last year of production of the 993 (1997), Porsche offered the 993 Turbo S. Ultimately 183 cars were sold. The Turbo S is a high-spec Turbo including a power upgrade to 424 hp (SAE) for the American market and to 450 hp (DIN) in other markets. The inclusion of extras including carbonfibre decoration in the interior makes it different from the earlier lightweight, spartan 964 Turbo S. The 993 Turbo S is recognized by yellow brake calipers, a slightly larger rear wing, a 4-pipe exhaust and air scoops behind the doors. This was the last of the air-cooled Turbos.

Interesting fact: 12 Turbo S cars were delivered to Australia.
